Who are you looking at?

Tom Shakespeare on what it feels like to be stared at... and why community is still as important as ever.

"Let me tell you about dwarfs and being stared at".

With a hint of stand up comedy, Tom Shakespeare writes poignantly about what it feels like to be stared at.

"The English," he says, "who were once known everywhere for their politeness and decorum, no longer hold back...we do what we want because we consider we have a right".

Tom appeals for a rediscovery of "the chain of mutual dependency in which we are still all linked together."
